"Paragus: It looks as though he's managed to transform somehow, taking on the incredible strength the Saiyans have whenever they become Great Apes. Only he's remaining in his human form, retaining his speed and agility.
Frieza: And is there a downside?
Paragus: Maybe, a big one. ...He can't control it, he's lost all sense of who and what he is.
Paragus explaining the Wrath State to Frieza in Dragon Ball Super: Broly

Wrath State (怒りの状態 Ikari no Jōtai, lit. "Wrath State")[1] is an enraged state used by Broly.


This state allows the user to access the powers of the Great Ape but without the transformation itself.


The Wrath State has two stages, in the initial stage Broly appears the same as in his base form but with yellow eyes and gains a green aura with sparks.

In the second stage, his hair spikes up like a Super Saiyan and he gains increased muscle mass and height.

Usage and Power


Wrathful Broly vs. Super Saiyan Blue Goku

According to Paragus, it is a utilization of the Great Ape form's power, physical strength, and durability in humanoid form. Although, it is extremely difficult to control.

In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Broly first shows signs of this state against Daigen, with his eyes briefly flashing yellow when strangling the combatant. When increasing his power while fighting Super Saiyan Vegeta, Broly's eyes briefly turn yellow once more.

Broly utilizes the initial stage of this form against Super Saiyan God Vegeta after losing to him the first around of their fight. In this state, Broly is able to quickly overwhelm Vegeta in their rematch before Goku steps in. In his subsequent battle with Goku, Broly takes on the full version of the form and despite his inferior fighting skill, was able to easily keep up with and force him soon to enter Super Saiyan and eventually even Super Saiyan God. He proceeds to easily overwhelms him in his Super Saiyan God and even proved to be a challenge for his Super Saiyan Blue form before being overwhelmed.

Variations and advanced levels

Video Game Appearances

In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, it was named Wrathful.


  • In the original Dragon Ball series, Goku was seemingly able to harness the power of a Great Ape in his base form due to having his hidden potential released after drinking the Ultra Divine Water. In both the manga and the anime, those effects were signifiied with a mirage of a Great Ape surrounding him while he was fighting King Piccolo.
  • The Wrath State shares some traits with Super Saiyan 4 introduced in Dragon Ball GT, both transformations utilizing the power and strength of a Great Ape without changing shape. However, while Goku and Vegeta in Super Saiyan 4 are conscious of their actions, those in the Wrath State such as Broly become feral and uncontrollable.
